As we age, our lips lose volume and their fullness. We may even notice this in our late 20s and early 30s! This is due to a loss of fat, collagen (a structural protein), and hyaluronic acid (keeps list moist from the inside-out). There are various ways to enhance the fullness of your lips and help you achieve a more younger looking face. Two of the top lip augmentation treatments include fat transfer and dermal fillers.
2 Effective Ways to Plump Lips
Fat Transfer for Fuller Lips
Fat transfer involves taking unwanted fat from one area of your body and injecting it into another area. During a fat transfer procedure, fat is removed via liposuction. Fat can be taken from areas such as the abdomen, thighs, or buttocks. The fat is then treated and injected into the area you desire – such as your lips.
Fat transfer uses your own fat, so it provides the most natural results and there’s almost no risk of an allergic reaction. Another positive benefit is the removal of unwanted fat! If you are looking for a Las Vegas fat transfer doctor, contact Apex Medical Spa today! We offer a free consultation to see if you are a good candidate for the fat transfer procedure.
Dermal Fillers – Juvederm®
Dermal fillers are injectable gels that can also add volume to your lips. There are two main groups of dermal fillers – natural fillers and synthetic fillers. Natural fillers are made up of naturally-derived materials (i.e. found in the body).
The most popular type of dermal filler contains hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid naturally occurs in our bodies’ skin and cartilage. It acts as a hydrator and moisturizer. Juvederm® is a popular hyaluronic acid dermal filler, and we offer it at our Apex Medical Spa.
Juvederm results typically last 1-2 years. Therefore, follow-up treatments may be required. Juvederm treatments take about 30 minutes and are relatively painless.
